  1. Hello all, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's May meeting will be on the 15th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. We will be holding another raffle this meeting, and invertebrates are again the object of discussion ;D! Also, planning a hike/collecting trip in Riverside for the end of this month after the fantastic trip we had in April, stay tuned for more information. Thanks, Arthroverts
  2. Never heard of this species before, how cool! The texturing is quite interesting. What stage of development is the specimen in the photo? What is their care like? Thanks, Arthroverts
  3. Hello all, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's April meeting will be on the 17th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. We will be discussing invertebrates as per usual, and there will be another (free) raffle at this meeting. We are also trying to organize a hike for the evening of the 18th (Sunday) in the San Gabriel Mountains at a spot along Highway 39. If interested please message me or email us through the club email address for further particulars. Thanks, Arthroverts
  4. Don't tell @Dragozap, ha ha, he's always after more Reticulitermes. Do share some photos when they arrive though, such an interesting genus. Thanks, Arthroverts
  5. Not while humans keep roaches in plastic jars ;D. Thanks, Arthroverts
  6. I imagine it's just to rot the leaves faster, as far as I'm aware there's no benefit to doing it that particular way if you already have well-rotted leaves. Thanks, Arthroverts P.S I tried keeping a California species or locale of blue springtail, didn't end well as they wouldn't feed on anything I offered them and seemingly didn't like my temperatures. They eventually perished and I haven't seen anyone successfully breed USA blue springtails.
  7. Unlikely. Even though I'm not happy about Australia's ban, and even if I still don't think it's the best way to manage a nation's wildlife, as of late I've grown more recalcitrant to hope for the laxing of import laws because of the devastating effects the pet industry has wrecked upon wildlife the world over. With Australia at this point, it may be wise just to leave it closed like it is. By golly, we can't even keep a large number of species we've had before alive for more than a few years here in the US, and the same is even more true of Europe. Thanks, Arthroverts
  8. Wowzers, 22 years? It goes back even to the internet dark ages... Thank you Orin and Peter for your work to keep this and the other forums alive. Thanks, Arthroverts
  9. Good grief! This is terrible, I forgot to do this until the 8th of March! Anyways, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's March meeting will be on the 20th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. Unfortunately we are still meeting virtually, but fortunately there will be a raffle this meeting! Looking forward to seeing all who can make it (if I can figure out my camera problem with Skype that is, otherwise I'll just hear you...). Thanks, Arthroverts
  10. Meeting today! Don't forget to bring your questions for Dr. Bond, I'm looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  11. Redmont unfortunately disappeared from the hobby some time ago. Thanks, Arthroverts
  12. Hello all, the Invertebrate Club of Southern California's February meeting will be on the 20th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. Dr. Jason E. Bond, who described Cryptocteniza kawtak, worked on the 2016 Aphonopelma revision and the 2012 Aptostichus revision (along with a small host of other works), will be coming to answer questions and discuss invertebrates (if all goes according to plan)! Bring your questions and scientific names, I know I am definitely going to be asking him about what we as hobbyists can do to protect C. kawtak and other California native mygalomorphs in the
  13. Despite my sleepiness after a crazy week, we all had a great time discussing mantids, roaches, ants, Triops, and all manner of other invertebrates (and a few vertebrates...) at this past January meeting. Though I unfortunately did not have the new T-shirt design ready in time, we did take advantage of our ability to share our collections via video: MrGhostMantis showed us his Deroplatys truncata, Hierodula membranacea, and Heterochaeta orientalis, sgvmantid showed us his two Stagmomantis limbata, and I showed some of my roaches and beetles. We also got to meet two new club members, XxSpiderQue
  14. Wow, congratulations! That is a very attractive looking species. I hope they do well for you, we need more specimens in culture. Thanks, Arthroverts
